Teaser Tuesday

Thank goodness for Teaser Tuesday to get me back on track!!!    Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading and it asks us to...
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week, my teaser comes from a book I just got from the library:  The White Queen by Philippa Gregory.  It's a bit different from my usual reads, but I've always enjoyed Antonia Fraser's nonfiction books, so I thought I'd try a bit of historical fiction.

" 'I hope your husband will do it,' my mother says bluntly.  'For the only way to make the English throne safe is to hold a pillow on his face and help him to lasting sleep.' "    p. 180

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl page 396

"The Fallen Angels nodded in unison from their seats on the bleachers like someone was pulling invisible strings attached to their heads, which, in a way, someone was. Mr Hollingsworth was scribbling on a yellow legal pad."

Huh, interesting teaser. Never read a Phillippa Gregory book before.

Phillippa Gregory is one of my favorite authors...but I have been a little wary of her every since I read a triology that involved incest with the main character and her brother...it was very weird. BUT I have always LOVED everything else I have ever read by her. I will have to check this one out! :D
